*UPDATE* Cost Shares Waived for non COVID-19 telehealth visits for some Health Insurance Carriers
Updated: Apr 7
So far, Aetna and Horizon have waived all cost shares that include copays, deductibles, co-insurance for all qualified in-network Telehealth visits, including teletherapy, for a period time.
For Horizon clients this means that from March 17, 2020 through June 13, 2020, there will be no cost shares during this time for teletherapy sessions at Perlman Counseling.
For Aetna clients this means that from March 11, 2020 through June 4, 2020, there will be no cost shares during this time for teletherapy sessions at Perlman Counseling.
If any existing patients with Horizon or Aetna health insurance have paid any form of cost share for during the respective period, we can hold on to the payment and apply it to the next visit that a cost-share would apply (after the respective date in June 2020).
If any other insurances waive any cost-shares, we will update this post.
